Today, it is very convenient to make private brand products, even open to small businesses or start-ups. The easiest way to own your own brand products is to print your company’s logo on the packaging. China has an amazing number of suppliers in the packaging industry, providing various solutions for product packaging.
In the following article, we will discuss why China is the right place to purchase Customize Toy Product Packaging manufacturers and the costs you need to pay attention to. We also briefly introduced how to make your own design packaging when you import products from us.
1. Why do we need customized packaging?
Most small business buyers import non-branded products from China, but rarely use their own packaging. However, customized packaging is extremely beneficial to start-ups and small businesses. They can create their own brands without participating in the complex, time-consuming and expensive product development process.
What you need to do Customize Toy Product Packaging is select a supplier, be ready to provide high-quality products, and then sell them to your target customers. Then you can cover it with your own packaging; Print your company’s logo on the package and sell these products to the market. This will make your brand popular and successful in the local market.
Many suppliers pay little attention to the packaging of products. They sell products to customers with original design and packaging. Sometimes, the packaging box of these products will contain information from other companies.
This is because Chinese suppliers provide packaging design to other customers and do not understand the information printed on the packaging box. Therefore, you will eventually sell your products under other brand names without Customize Toy Product Packaging.
In other cases, the original packaging of the factory makes the product look monotonous. Here, if you only incur a little extra cost when repackaging the product, Customize Toy Product Packaging will make the product look more attractive. You can easily increase the price of new packaged products by 5-10% or more. This will also differentiate your products from competitors, even if both buy products from the same Chinese supplier.
The minimum order quantity and reference price of different packages will be described in detail in the next section of this blog.
2.Is custom packaging expensive?
Most sellers buy products and sell them to customers without their own packaging. There are two main reasons behind this approach. First of all, they know little about customized packaging and think it is extremely expensive. Secondly, they believe that custom packaging is only applicable to very large orders. So never try small orders.
However, the fact is that custom packaging is very cheap and can be bought even for very small orders in China. In the following description, we will analyze two common situations for this problem.
Case 1: Use the original packaging of the factory, with your design.
Let’s take “Tortoise Projector Lamp” as an example, which we helped customers purchase before.
The factory provides “tortoise lamp” in the normally designed box (the box on the right in the photo).
Most tortoise lamp factories use this box to supply their products to customers. Customize Toy Product Packaging is very common for small factories in China to use the same packaging box, because they have never thought of making their own design. You can find this black box in Alibaba, eBay, Amazon and other places.
Our customer made his own design box (the one on the left in the photo) and paid only $100 for the printing model. He ordered 1000 pieces of this product, which means that he only needs to pay an additional fee of US $0.1 for each product. With his own design and brand on the box, he can easily sell the product at a price of $1 higher than that of the competitors who use the factory’s black box.
For box packaging, the product factory will usually help you design your own packaging, and will usually charge $80 – $100 for the first printing model, and no charge will be charged for subsequent orders. But sometimes there will be about $40 for each order to assemble the model on the printing press. Please keep this in mind, because some suppliers will provide you with low product prices, but the cost of Customize Toy Product Packaging is very high. However, the cost still depends on different packaging types.
Case 2: Customized packaging in other printing companies in China.
Sometimes for some products, the supplier may not provide any product packaging; Or you don’t like the product packaging. In both cases, you need to find a printing company or factory to produce your packaging and transport it to the product factory.
One of our customers bought 2000 teddy bears for $1.3. However, the bears provided by the supplier do not have any packaging. Then we found a printing factory to print and package toys for customers and got three solutions to our problems:
For OPP bags with its own logo, the minimum order quantity is 3000 pieces, each of which is US $0.03.
With self-designed paper cards, the minimum order quantity is 2000 pieces, and each piece is $0.065.
With self-designed color box, $0.19 per 2000 pieces.
The customer finally chose the box designed by himself to package the toy. Because he can sell the teddy bear at a price of $1 higher without any packaging.
3.How to customize your packaging?
The process of Customize Toy Product Packaging is very simple and explained in the following discussion:
Search related products on Alibaba to find different packaging from similar products. This will help you get some inspiration and ideas about packaging.
Select the appropriate packaging according to the products you will provide to customers. (For different types of packaging, you can refer to our article here)
If your supplier can help you with the printing work, you should be ready to design the artwork needed for packaging. This should be saved as an AI file in your system.
If you can’t find a designer to design your packaging, you can find an experienced designer on Upwork to help you design your product packaging. What you need to do is let them know the packaging picture and design type you want.
If your supplier cannot do Customize Toy Product Packaging, you can find the printing supplier on Alibaba through direct search or inquiry tool, and then print your design.
If you find a printing supplier, consider his position before making a final decision on whether to hire him. This location should be close to your product supplier. Before making any commitment to the product supplier, please confirm the domestic freight to the product supplier’s location. Or, you will end up paying a lot of money for product delivery to and from the printer location.
Try to find suppliers in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province. This area is often called “China Printing City”. There are many printing suppliers here, many of which provide a very small number of printing services.
